So much for relaxing on the weekend! This morning, I volunteered at a FAFSA completion workshop in Abbevile, so I had to be up early to drive over to that. I grabbed a Happy Meal from a McDonald’s (I wanted that vintage toy! I got a red Power Ranger.) on my way back to Baton Rouge. I spent the next few hours at the Diaper Bank, then I went to early vote, and I stopped at Walgreens on my way home. I needed to drop off a prescription, but Ellen told me about a stuffed dinosaur they were selling...so I went in the store to check out the scene. I left with the dinosaur, so my next challenge is to keep Scooter away from it. I also need to name it. I’m leaning toward PhDinosaur because I foresee much cuddling with and some tears shed onto this dinosaur in the next few years. We shall see, though.

I was able to spend some time with Richard before he went to work, then I went for a run. I did a bit of knitting (finished a shawl), had a celebratory beverage after the football game, and watched a bit of TV. The time is now 9:55 pm, and I am in my pajamas ready for bed. I did zero reading for school, but I did have a good day. That has to count for something.
Oh, and LSU beat Alabama today. That was pretty cool.
Something that made today great: Lots of things today! I’ll go with the dinosaur.
Time I woke up: 6:20 am
